Ok, so a little update. I went in on the X-brake group buy, the second one. Paul Clay was nice enough to give me a heads up, since we both have an LT95. Apparently there are 2 types of LT95 speedo housing. Ours are the one that needed a regular 110 LT230 backing plate. Lets just say even though I went to all the trouble of directly email Si with pictures of my LT95 and him telling me the exact kit that I needed, I received the wrong backing plate (not Si's fault). Not once but twice. I finally received the correct plate 2 days ago and will be putting it on soon.

Anyway, here are some pics of the RSOV that Stephen at SafariHP restored. Snapped these when I came over to pick up my SD cage.

Cool. Glad you got it sorted. Which SD cage did you go with? 183? If so, watch out for the lower windscreen bar and the folding windscreen hinges, unless you changed them for the solid brackets.

I got the same cage you did. I just picked up a new set of folding windshield brackets. Will it not clear them? I can exchange them for the solid ones but want to keep it oldschool.

I too got a set of the folding brackets, had them painted... and then when I tried to put the external portion of the cage on, it fouled. Got new solid brackets, painted them and it fit. That being said, I can say conclusively that the 183 cage on an 83 110 is not a straight bolt in job. With your newer tub and flat roof (?) it will probably be an easier install. For mine, there were several areas where things had to be modded to make it work. Interestingly, I had an extra internal roof bar and there were a few missing brackets. SD was responsive and provided them when notified that they were not in the box.

That's good to know, I'll see if Stephen can trade out the brackets for me. And I do not have a flat roof. Do you?

I have pretty much replaced every single nut, bolt, and washer on this truck. Here I am replacing everything in the footwell with stainless hardware:

Nah, I know a lot of people want the newer Defender look. I'm keeping it old-school. Has more character.

Back to the X-brake:

The kit I received with the wrong LT95 back plate. I had ordered a Defender LT230 kit:

Correct back plate on. Just for your information the Defender LT230 back plate will clear the Farey Overdrive. The Disco back plate is rotated 90 degrees and fouls on the OD:

I fitted the caliper but ran out of time yesterday. Just have some fine tuning to do. Very easy install.

The rest of the X-Brake install in case anyone needs photo reference. For some reason my kit came with 2 cable brackets. I used the bigger one with the extended L-bracket to stop it from rotating.

So I was re-reading through this thread and realized I never posted pics of the rest of the painting.

Here is me and my 2 little helpers doing the final rubdown before the spray:

Here I am putting the cappings back on. I decided to use SS Buttonhead screws instead of rivets for ease of removal if I had to. I used nylon washers under each to help prevent galvanic corrosion, in theory anyway.

Yeah, crazy right? I didn't want to have to drill out another rivet. Have you ever drilled out a rivet? It ends up spinning and making a mess of the paint and structure underneath. Really not that bad but it's not a lot of fun, especially if you spent years on a restoration. Anyway, this way I can easily take any panel apart later if I had too. I figure the purists would flame me, but, when they do their own rebuild, they can use all the rivets they want

I read about this mod 2 years before starting this project and have been waiting patiently for the day I could actually do it. Dave Souza wrote it up here:

SS Door Hinge Upgrade

So here is a follow up from my previous post about upgrading my door hinge bolts to SS. See this post here.

I was so frustrated at how brittle the Brit Parts were I was about to give up. I couldn't replace the nut on the Brit Part with the SS 5/16th square nut without the Brit Parts breaking I was going to give up the whole idea of going stainless. I was roaming around Home Depot a few months ago and found these in the specialty bin. They are very stout and strong compared to the Brit Parts:

They already have the correct 5/16th nuts on them. Here they are compared to the cheap and brittle Brit Parts:

It is not a perfect fit but the mod is so easy and worth it to upgrade your bolts to SS. Maybe it was my older bulkhead, but I had to squeeze the sides a little bit to get it to fit in the bulkhead:

You will also have to cut a little off the back plate, otherwise it will interfere with the door hinge:

Yeah thanks guys. I am very happy with the results. Hardest part was not getting any grease, oil, or sweat on the surface before laying down the paint, hence the white suit. It was not there to protect me but to keep me from sweating on the truck while painting

Ok I took advantage of having the front wings off and started to install the SD cage. The instructions are useless. The front hoop is tied into the front outrigger and bulkhead via brackets A and B. You will have to remove the long bulkhead bolt to fit bracket A.

Note: if you have rock sliders that tie into this bolt you may need a longer bolt. I ended up using 12M x 200 mm. $11/bolt at Ace Hardware.

Next you will have to drill out 2 spot welds on the outer wing to take off the gusset in order for the reinforcement bracket B to fit properly.

Then you will have to cut the lower flange on the outer wing

I had a template made from an old NAS wing when I was at Stephen's for the cutout in the wing. Even with this, it was not a perfect fit. Just cut smaller and hand file as necessary, trial fitting on bracket A as you go. I ended up needing 2 big washers sandwiched between brackets A and B to get it to the right height:
